Beautiful Tuscany !
Rolling green hills with a patchwork of crops arranged by artistic hands.
Hilltop villages watching proudly over the land they once protected.
Whenever you see a painting of Tuscany it always includes the architectural contrast of pencil pines.
I don't know if that's the proper name for them but if you look at any of my photos you will see them.
Placed there purely for decoration, they are the perfect foil for those rolling hills.
Then there's the stone buildings
With old, weathered terracotta tiles
And picturesque walls. ... And flowers - at the moment mainly roses and geraniums but lots of buds promising a very colourful Summer.
